Admissions Overview

the process

Our Admissions department is committed to helping you throughout the entire process, guiding you through each step of the enrollment process and answering any questions you may have along the way. The first step in the enrollment process is to schedule an interview with an Admissions Representative, which will give you the opportunity to ask us any questions you may have, and, most importantly, determine whether RGV Careers is the right fit for you. If you may have any questions that come to mind from scheduling to curriculum and financial aid – please ask us; we want you to make an informed decision when it comes to one of the most important choices in your life. Throughout the Admissions section of this site, we've tried to give you a thorough overview of the admissions process at RGV Careers, but we understand that everyone's situation is different. So if you have any questions as you navigate through this section, please contact an Admissions Representative at 956.781.6800.
